    A friend of mine called about an hour ago and told me but I hadn't been able to find anything until just now anywhere. I guess it is true. That sucks. RIP to the Ox.

    Yeah, I think it is true. Wow, he wasn't that old. I was considering going to this tour since I had never seen the Who. I'm sure the Who is over this time...

    Well, what's John Paul Jones doing these days? And of course, I can think of one pint-sized, whiskey drinking mofo who has a lot of time on his hands...

    Anyways, RIP John! We'll miss you.

    Man... now this sucks! I'm really not a huge Who fan, but John Entwistle was a brilliant musician, very much ahead of his time, and there's no way in Hell he could ever be replaced.

    RIP John... you will be missed.

    John was, in my mind, the greatest rock bassist EVER. So sad to hear that he's gone. [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img]
